NFL Combine - Feb 27 to March 5

Nathan Shepherd, the Canadian neg list player for the TiCats has been invited to the NFL Combine . The 6'5" 300lb DT from Fort Hays St. is considered to be a 4th or 5th round selection in the NFL draft . If he ends up in the TiCat camp, perhaps he could be joined by a possible 2018 CFL draft pick by the name of Julien Laurent of Georgia St. . He too is a DT from Toronto who is ranked #5 in the top 20 CFL Prospects .

It would be interesting to have 2 Laurents on the same line. The Cdn depth on the Dline, with Vaughn from last year's draft, would certainly improve the ratio options .

The NFL and CFL Combines, along with their subsequent drafts, means the 2018 season is getting closer and closer .

Pat Lynch (the old guy)

Nathan broke his hand Jan.24th.
Minor setback for him. Looks like an interesting player that will no doubt end up on an NFL roster for a couple seasons.
